I’m always up for trying new restaurants in the neighborhood, so I was excited to go to Moutarde (239 5th Ave, on the corner of Carroll St.) on Valentine’s Day.
The long and short of it was that our food was mediocre and the service absolutely sucked. The fifteen-year-old waitress couldn’t tell us the specials because “they were still figuring them out” despite the fact that it was 6pm.
Inspired by this Jezebel article (and the Simpsons ep) we've got another simple question: Do you think its offensive to say "that's so gay"? (And follow up: Do you say it?)
Again, answer in the comments (and feel free to go stealth anon if you want some priv-ass-y).
Well, as usual I'm obsessed with Blognigger's latest post - It's all about the somewhat anticlimactic lack of everyday racial progress that has followed in the months since Obama's election.
At the end of the post, he asks a question which demands some pretty stern honesty, and which I think would be interesting to recontextualize in terms of Park Slope itself:
"I've noticed this several times in the last couple of months, including yesterday and today - there has been a pile of excrement on the (closed off) steps towards the end of the train on Manhattan bound side of 7th Ave. B/Q station. I feel for the person who has to do this, and I feel for the person who has to clean this up, but I also feel for the subway riders who have to encounter this smell and sight on an increasingly regular basis."
What do you think, bitches?:Rogue shitter or someone taking a stand against the evil MTA?
